The Rice County Fair Ambassadors are from left to right: Kelsie DeMars of Faribault, Ella Schmidt of Nerstrand, Kaia Quimby of Faribault. Congratulations to these young ladies and a thank you to all the ladies that ran.
After this morning's announcement by the Rice County Fair board and agricultural society, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 ambassador program.
Traditionally, the Ambassador Scholarship Program would be recruiting, finding sponsors, and starting sessions with new candidates at this time. The concerns around requesting sponsorships from struggling local businesses and for the safety of our candidates, were also reasons for not holding a candidacy program this year.
That being said the 2019 Ambassadors, Kaia Quimby, Ella Schmidt, and Kelsie DeMars have gracious agreed to extend their year until July 2021, they will have a watered down schedule this fall and winter and next spring and early summer have a chance to attend the many events they missed due to the pandemic this year. Thank you so much for your support and we can't wait to get back together at the Rice County Fair in 2021!
